BOSTON, JUNE 2, 2017.....Boston Pride week kicked off at City Hall Plaza on Friday with a flag-raising event where speakers both celebrated the LGBTQ community and called on supporters to mobilize in the face of what could be a brewing political battle over transgender rights.

The week-long celebration champions and promotes equal rights for the city's gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender residents. Pride Week events, from block parties to family events to panels, will lead up to the 47th annual Pride Parade. The 2017 pride week theme is "stronger together," which Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said is fitting following the most recent presidential election.
